Journalist David Kirby explores the chilling possibility that a vaccine additive may be fueling an apparent epidemic of autism, ADD, speech delay and other disorders in America’s children.
In the 1990’s, reported autism cases among American children began spiking, from about 1 in 10,000 in 1987 to a shocking 1 in 166 today. In this period, new shots containing a mercury-based preservative called Thimerosal were added to the nation’s already crowded vaccination schedule. At the same time, some parents noticed that their healthy children were descending into silent, disturbed, and physically ill behavior after receiving vaccinations. In 1999, the FDA announced that children were being exposed to mercury at very young ages at levels far exceeding federal regulations, but the public health establishment failed to take parental concerns about the impact seriously.
David Kirby joined Joe Broadhurst of CKUT Radio in Montreal to discuss the relationship of Autism and mercury in vaccines.
